One is never too old to learn more or have new experiences. Last week for the first time in my 73 years, I was "acting chief"… I presided as a Vice President over an executive meeting... and surprise, it was easy... because, it was a telephone conference call. What a difference that makes not having folks stare at you. I think I did OK and two folks said I did well, whew! Glad that’s over with. Now to keep trying to improve what is done for home oxygen users. YOU could help too if you joined, if you have a story for the monthly news letter… share it so others can learn from your experience (s).
Jon Tiger, on the left, is the President - was away so I got the job for February anyway. We both have TTO - transtracheal oxygen delivery systems... that feeds the supplemental oxygen direct into our neck - the superior oxygenator of all systems, once you get one you won't ever want the old cannula back and all wonder why on earth they waited (it took me 4 years to make up my mind ). www.tto2.com
The NHOPA (National HOME Oxygen Patient Association) read about it - http://www.homeoxygen.org/about We work trying to help all with the need for supplemental oxygen. Recently we have updated the web site, lots of new articles & resources to explore. Take a look at the Airplane Travel section, what you need to know if you plan to fly with oxygen. The monthly newsletter is up and running again, and the members booklet if you want to share your addresses too. See if someone also on oxygen lives near you. ã€€http://www.homeoxygen.org/membership-formThe oxygen booklet is in process of being revised… it is difficult to keep up with all the changes and additions to respiratory/oxygen equipment.
And now an overload of links - I am sure there is something that you want to learn about, then scroll to your fun reward at the end of the page.
